Experience: I have been a patent attorney since 1998. I have extensive experience in the preparation and prosecution of patent applications on behalf of clients ranging from relatively new start-ups to major corporations. My technical areas of expertise include computer and communications systems and protocols, cybersecurity and cryptography, computer graphics, user interfaces, and media delivery.
Prior to my legal career, I served with the US Department of Defense for 17 years in the information security arena. And in addition to my position as a Senior Attorney with Shami Messinger, I also serve as a Clinical Instructor of Patent Law at the University of Maryland’s Carey School of Law.
